‘Sensory’ CBS Medical Drama Pilot Rolled

CBS has pushed Sensory, its hourlong pilot from ER alum David Zabel, Scott Free Prods., CBS TV Studios and Sony TV’s TriStar Television.

The project was one of the last drama pickups this season, ordered on Feb 5. Starting from behind, the pilot had a hard time casting, leading to the decision to not proceed with production this pilot season and roll it. CBS and the producing studios intend to revisit it after the upfronts.

Written by Zabel, Sensory is inspired by the the true story of Dr. Joel Salinas, a neurologist and researcher at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. The two-hander centers around a veteran neurologist and her protégé who, like Salinas, has mirror-touch synesthesia, a neurological trait that causes him to experience other people’s sensations. Zabel executive produces with Ridley Scott and David Zucker of Scott Free Prod. and Roger Freet of Foundry Media.

The move leaves Bunker Hill as the only CBS medical drama pilot in contention for next season.
